Will your job descriptions lose lawsuits? Learn how to specify soft skills accurately.

With low unemployment and a looming recession, organizations are battling hiring challenges or deciding who to lay off. At both ends of the spectrum, job descriptions play a critical role in making and communicating those decisions.
